If you’re not necessarily in the market for a new vehicle now, but may be in a year or two, you’re going to have some quality options. Kia is a good example of a brand that’s been innovating and preparing for what future consumers will want, starting with one of its popular SUV models – the Sorento. We haven’t seen a full redesign for the Sorento in a couple of years, but now that technology and style has advanced, word on the street is that Kia will be throwing a lot of it into a Kia Sorento 2018 model. If you’re curious about the rumors surrounding the changes and updates on the Sorento, keep on reading!
It’s been rumored that the newest 2018 Kia Sorento will have an updated exterior. If you’ve seen the Niro, then you may be familiar with the front-end shape and design. Well, it’s been said that the new Sorento will take its styling cues from the Niro, giving drivers a more rounded, sleek look. There have also been whisperings of the logo location changing from an on-grille mount to above the grille.
Powertrain for the Kia Sorento 2018 is also supposedly going to be upgraded. With vehicles like the Niro out on the loose, it’s very apparent that Kia has the right technology to deliver some impressive specifications on its models, as well as all-new powertrain integrations. While there isn’t any confirmation on this, it’s expected the new Kia may also offer some of the same engine options currently released.
Will there be a Kia Sorento hybrid?
In the past, there has been talk around town about either the 2017 or Kia Sorento 2018 gaining a hybrid option. This hasn’t been confirmed by Kia, but again, the Niro is a good indication that the brand is capable of such measures.
The Kia Sorento 2018 may sport a more lavish interior than the existing model. The dashboard may be revamped and there would be plenty of soft-touch materials. Kia may throw in some useful small item storage bins and holders.
